For fifty years a box of old Work Basket magazines lay in the attic of an old Maryland farmhouse. But for lovers of needlecraft (knitting, crocheting, sewing) they never get old. No matter how old the patterns, they can still be re-crafted today. Beginning in 1935 and for more than 60 years this little paper magazine was sent to eager housewives who looked forward to the monthly craft news, transfer patterns, tips, recipes - all the things they needed to care for their loved ones economically and mostly made themselves. In the beginning a year subscription was just $1.00. By 1967 the cost had been raised to 25-cents for each issue. But it now sported a front cover that was in full color. The familiar red and black (or yellow and black) issues had been phased out in the mid 1960s. This is the last set and only six issues could be salvaged. They are in good condition with all the directions and bits of information and fun crafts still inside One still holds an embroidery transfer. Set includes February, March, May, June, August and September. You won’t want to miss the advertisements and classifieds. They are priceless.
